    I am an international student self teaching Edexcel A-Level Maths and Further Maths in less than an year (Yes i know it is highly ambitious). My school does the UK A-Level Maths and Further Maths and because of this i only have the option to sit both exams in May/June (cant do October/November as i am not and won't be ready by then) which would be to much for me to handle as i would sit a total of 18 exams. So being an international student i have decided to switch to Edexcel IAL (International A Level) Maths and Further Maths so i could sit C12, S1, C34, M1 & maybe FP1 in January and then maybe sit FP2, FP3, D1, M2, S2 and maybe FP1 in June or split them between the May/June and October/November series of next year. A friend wanted to do the same for A-Level Maths but the school immediately declined. My only choice is to sit them as a Private Candidate. I checked the Edexcel site but did not find the info i needed, does anyone know what details i may need to do this, and would i require any sort of information from my school? Also would this cause any problems with my University Application considering that i sat exams at different centers?

    You need to find an exam centre in whatever country you live in, possibly the British Council if you have one. Then register yourself as a candidate with them and sit your exams. You won't need any info from your school to sit the exams. There won't be any problems with your university application regarding that.

    I did much the same, having switched to Edexcel IAL this time last year, sat most of my exams in Jan 2016 and then finished off the rest in June 2016.
